Everyone applauding everyone but our kids!!? These little heroes have stayed indoors more than they’ve ever known in their lives. Their whole little worlds have literally been turned upside down. All these rules they’ve never known. A life they couldn’t have imagined. Parents talking about others becoming unwell, news reporting death after death. Our poor babies minds must be racing. Every day they get up and carry on despite of all that’s going on and all they’ve done is yoga, indoor games, paint pictures and put stuff in their windows for the heroes out in the world. So here’s to our little and even big heroes, today tomorrow, forever.💙

They will love you when you smile
Whether You mean it or not
It will bring them security
No need to accept your humanity
The gritty taste of your mortality
Smile only if it doesnt hurt your face
They dont deserve it anyways

On your gray days they will look away
Avert their eyes
Your tear tracks will cause them to squirm
Acknowledging your pain somehow makes them the victim
Let the storms within you rage anyway

The days your eyes are wild and your smile is too bright
Those days even your skin tingles in delight
They will ask you to tone it down
Without uttering words
Just that stern look that says "reign it in"
Those days... You be a damn firework

Your accomplishments will be...

loving you always felt
like walking a tight rope
across two skyscrapers

underneath us, the ravenous city streets
where strangers bump into one another
but always move away
from the moment
they had crashed
into each other's
arms

above us, the wind picks up speed
a lonely leaf flutters
flies, far away from
the forest it was once
born in
but no matter how far
it goes, it remembers
the earth, the sun
the branches it called
lovers

and between this remembering
and wishing we didn't have to,
we exist. weightless
like a body left floating
in space
.

Will you tell me,
How to hold on to grudges?

You'd think the wall of my heart
Is made of bricks,
Used to build the insides
Of the skyscrapers.
But my heart, oh my heart,
Is a lightweight carefree balloon,
Filled with the air of my sensitivity.
It bleeds,
As the fragile balloon fails to contain it,
When there is too much of me in it.

I curse the existence of my reflexes
(as much as I curse my own).
I curse the existence of my reflexes
(If at all they exist).
Because when people
with swords and knives
and needles and screwdrivers
in their hands, arrive,
I don't hide.

Instead I dedicate my poems to them.
Because I carry my heart in my palms,
and let it hang
loosely,
across th...

I see myself
fade like a droplet
shivering with cold
on the surface of a glass
I lose myself
slowly

I see myself
asphyxiate

which is pinched

looking
for tiny bits of hope
from my scattered life
like a sparrow looks
for straws to build a nest
I will build up my life

lost in the chaos of my life
like the mischievous beads
of my mother's pearl necklace
that were lost
once their thread was broken.
Just like the white beads
fall one by one

Made me believe in destiny,
like the universe can hear our heartbeat,
Kissed away my sadness,
Healed my wound when I didn't asked for it,
You are my saving grace,
You are my sunshine in the rain,
So why do you have to go away.

All my life
has been a search
for the one road
leading me to the place
that says,

You belong here
and I have been searching
for you too. Welcome home.
Make yourself comfortable
in that skin, put your feet up,
relax in your own quiet where
you feel safe, where it’s not
awkward just to breathe,
where being you is enough.

But it’s dark here
in this search
that remains unfounded,
the road crosses over
between almost there
and sorry, this road is closed.
Hitting roadblocks to see
what could be waiting
on the other side.
It’s always nothing
disguised as everything.
It’s giving all of myself
to the hands that give up
quicker than me
and I’m usually pretty quick.
It’s t...

"Inferia"

Time changed everything...
All emotions have been locked away
After having being shed shamelessly
In the altar of loss...
And now , fear conquers all
It forced me to hide
And keep my distance
To everything worth living for...
And in the dark ,
All memories return
Like ghosts in the night
Reminding me of who I used to be...
Tears and pain
The gift of a life that has come to pass...
The last vestiges of a soul's dim light
Silently crying for mercy...
I found comfort in melodies of passion
In poems of shakespearean love
And dreams of tragic sacrifice...
And in this void ,
Somehow you found me...
I never thought that I could feel again
Like I do when I breathe your name...
I'm missing...

Have you ever felt the air
between the spaces?
No, not the kind that gushes through mountain passes
bringing the fragrance from the valleys beyond.
or the kind that finds its escape
between high-rise buildings in a concrete jungle.

But rather the air between the space
when two people talk.
How sometimes it has a soft warm glow
filled with love and all things light.
Then there are days it’s a hazy mist that blinds reasons
and you are grappling to find the person right next to you.
At times it becomes a solid wall of nothingness
that seems to grow with time.
Sometimes it’s an ice cold drift
that it hurts to breathe.

Have you ever felt the air between the space
when two people talk?
How it's ...

| Afraid |
Not afraid to love,
she loves entirely too much,
even after they break her
inch by inch, she sings
her soul's love song,
sleeping in the arms of infinite skies,
she hugs the breeze every time,
it tickles her behind her ears,
her body longs to hear a chorus,
at the end of each stanza,
of her soul's love song.
She is a home to people,
who are too lost to love,
(and too lost to live)
she empties herself, filling voids
in the lives of people,
she hugs their chunks,
and the scattered puzzle of their life
suddenly seems meaningful
she listens to their fateful tales,
with sigh in her heart and
tears crowding her lashes,
she holds their hand,
and walks with them, on the roads untr...

If, someday, ever, the mist
of the morning,
waiting to embrace
the lonely shadow
of the ever lasting night,
would let me see a glimpse
of you, onto the roof of  
the pebbles that sink,
in the soil-
which is as tender as
you- oh, not you,
but the ashes
of your fragile skin
that my bare fingers
fondled a month ago.
I shall tell you,
that one thing
I want you to know,
I shall now swallow my pride,
sip in the tears, and say,
I still think of you.

I think of you;
when I sit by my window,
and the morning dew
slides down my eyes,
when the horizon appears hazy
when the sun's red is shed,
like the crunchy leaves
of the daisy in our backyard,
for the night to caress
my​ morose mela...

Everyone​ who has ever loved me,
or, for a while, pretended to,
has ultimately found solace
in the petrichor of another garden
to bloom their roses in.
And I have been left in the parterre
of a lonely garden in my backyard,
on a lazy sunday morning,
yearning to grasp the air.
In an attempt to borrow a few grams
of oxygen from the already dying daisy,
I realise, it was longing
for you to exhale around
its mouth, for it to finally, breathe in.
I tried to tuck in a few tiny pieces
of air, in the almost dead bodies
of my long forgotten daises,
As I vacate my breaths,
And as she sheds her petals, one by one,
close to where you used to sit,
I hear the lub-dub of myself,

Total Population of Italy: 6 Crore
Total landscape of Italy:  294,140 km2
So, 203.97 people per km2 (Average)

Total Population of India: 133.9 crore
Total landscape of India: 3,287,263 Km2
So, 407.3 people per km2 (Average)

But due to the huge gap of the economy between the two countries, and also inside the country, we all know that the population isn't spread ideally.

So, taking in consideration of what's happening in Italy, even with a higher bracket of income and less people to deal with, we can say, that if we still continue to act like a bunch of Buffoons, then it won't be shocking that we will cross Italy and other countries too in the death toll.

nothing prepares you
for the moment, for the
absence which slowly
becomes your present

and i just want you to know
if it breaks you slowly
a window cracking while
it snows outside,
it's probably love
if it breaks you harder
a hammer missing the
nail and travelling the
downward curve to your
fingers instead, and the
pain that comes along
it's probably love too

we'll feel the same things
in different languages
and that doesn't make your
pain any lesser than mine
but gives us
the same solace to return
to, when it's all done
.

Depression is so underrated and overrated thing i guess.
Either it doesn't go well if you're just a normal person for people around to understand or it is such a sympathetic and hyped issue if you are famous.

The matter is it should be addressed as a continuous state of mind of being vulnerable to whom so ever it may concern.
You can not have different stands for same thing for two different people.

They asked me my favourite color and
It's black
Probably I like darkness or sunset
Or maybe I like grey more
To see in between, the possibilities away from the extreme points to let rational thoughts grow
And I loved red for the love but Delhi bloodshed changed that thought
I like saffron and green, when white in the middle
Seperated I saw them killing
May be dividing humans wasn't enough
May be dividing colors isn't that tough
They can't speak for themselves and so you needed it to bluff
It didn't work neither, I saw them united in a rainbow and a sky brighter
Ain't in your cage or bamboos ,
They their own master
You gotta see,
Every color is unique and every color stands for peace!

Today I have seen few kids playing out in our lane, when I asked them why they are out, they said it’s their parents who asked them to go out and play,

There are still some people who are thinking, if kids are there they’ll not let you sleep and not let you watch tv serials. If not today after few days you can watch serials, but do not let your kids go out.

Ps: if you see kids playing out,send them to their homes..
and parents give your kids some indoor activity to keep them busy.

Stay indoors, stay safe..

Just when you thought you have figured out what life is all about and where the road leads you to, you'll be amazed to know what a pretty mess this life can be.
And you'll end up exactly where you had started from. That's what I would like to call the circle of life.

Like a lullaby
On a lonely winter night
When the warmth of the quilt
Leaves my home quietly,
And I wait for the summer
To arrive with a scoop
of a vanila ice cream bar,
She never comes.
Instead I hear the crisp sound
of the autumn leaves
As they fall one by one
On the ground
All around
And I can see magic happen
Right in front of my eyes
As they shatter,
decay and then die
The magic, too, with them dies,
But the beauty
Of their pain and longing
For the trees stays forever.

Just like the autumn leaves,
When I fell for you,
I died a little, too.
And the magic ended too soon.
And that's how I know
This pain of separation
And longing is forever.

I might not have known
how to be a ‘girl’ in the relationship.
But did I ever tell you
yours was the first face I memorized?
That every time you giggle it reminds me
of the first time I tasted marshmallows.
All through high school and back at college
when people my age were busy
making out and breaking up,
I had my nose buried too deep in books
to notice it all.

I might not have known
how to be a ‘girl’ in the relationship.
I can never play
the damsel in distress part
for I prefer to be
the knight in shining armour.
I don’t like asking for help
but I often need help.
I can only make burnt dosas
and maggi noodles.
And I never learnt to drape a saree
as gracefully as my mom does it.

I wonder why I cannot be,
the one you wish to see,
when the grief sits in your throat,
pulls your tongue back
and you forget to speak.
I wonder why I cannot be,
just what you need,
when the world is a stage
but you seem to have fumbled
the lyrics to your favourite song,
and now you only wish to run,
to hide,
and disappear,
somewhere.
I wonder why I cannot be the bookmark
which gets to rest between your fingers,
when you,...sigh deeply,
after line twenty two of page fourteen,
of your favourite book.
I wonder why I cannot build the home,
you wish to run back to,
when pain swims in your eyes,
blurring your vision,
and erasing your footprints,
not letting you trace your way back

Love goes away;
to not come back.
You cry day and night,
but then, move on,
to live life sans him.
You find another body,
to embrace and make love to.
But you don't feel the rhythm
of their breaths on your neck.
The taste of their tongue,
doesn't quench your thirst.
.

So you wait, walking
on an empty street,
talking to the pigeons,
trying to mend your broke life.
Whispering in the ears,
of the wind, you sit
under the canopy, weaving
words with a set of
a few ruptured metaphors,
to create a poem, which will hug
you back on the nights,
you'll be too quiet to even cry out.
.
.
And then, one fine day,
hope will kiss your forehead,
and pigeons will tell you

"On A Dusty Bookshelf"

On a dusty bookshelf
Between the pages
Of my inner self
I will bury my secret...
And I will revisit the words I've written
In a dream at night
And I'll confess them to you
In your sleep...
So that we both stay safe
From the flames of love...

#little hearts

What happened to all those little hearts
that wanted to float paperboats
in frontyard puddles?
That tried to name every star
not knowing there are galaxies out there.
That counted happiness in candies
and sorrow in knee-scrapes.
That gave wet sloppy kisses
to mirror images,
tried stomping on shadows
and hugged a favourite stuffed toy to sleep.
That didn't crave for all the answers
and was satisfied to always have questions.
What happened to them?
Those little hearts?
May be they grew up, fell in love,
broke themselves
and put the pieces back differently
while trying to fix it all
and now no one knows what happened to them,
all those little hearts!

| Immortal |

They told me
if you fall in love with a writer,
you can never die,
but I wonder
why falling for a writer
and being walked over by one
feels completely
different
than what it should have been.
I wonder why
since the day you went away,
your words ceased to tell me
how beautiful I were,
and the stanzas of your poetry
stopped enclosing our memories,
why the pages of your diary
ceased to hide my name
behind the margins,
and your quill ceased
to remember the imprints of my fingers
I wonder why
instead of being immortal
in my own world,
I die
a little
everyday
since the day you went away.

Have you ever felt like you don't know the words
to describe how you feel?
Have you ever went out for a walk
not really knowing where you are headed?
Have you ever felt like every rustling leaf
is whispering something
that you wish you could decipher?
Have you ever stood still
letting the world move around you?

That pause. That uncertainty.
When you let things be
because you don't know what else to do.
Those are the moments
you are becoming You.
Let the clocks tick
and when the time comes you will know.
Time for what?
Ah, I don't know now.
